“Museum Honors Arafat But Avoids Conclusions,” was the headline on the print version of a New York Times dispatch from Ramallah about a $7 million new museum devoted to the life of PLO chairman Yasser Arafat. Alas, the same cannot be said of the Times article itself, which is full of conclusions, many of them wrong.It still doesn't excuse their routinely reprehensible approach. It's just like them to peddle that nasty falsehood while publishing an accepting view of a museum devoted to pushing an anti-Israeli, anti-semitic agenda, along with a monster who certainly did have blood on his hands, and not just from Jewish victims.
The article reports:
He died, according to the exhibit, after Israel apparently managed to poison him — this “based on evidence from laboratories and other medical reports as well as official statements by Israeli officials,” the text reads, though Israel denied involvement.
How this totally unsubstantiated and false accusation constitutes “avoiding conclusions” is left unexplained by the New York Times. Maybe some editor there also found the headline contradicted by the story, because the online version of the headline was eventually revised to the more accurate: “Museum Explores Arafat’s Legacy but Leaves Unanswered Questions.”
